summary

description

Until recently, climbing in Vermont was mostly undocumented -- there was no published guide or information. Sandwiched between the 'Dacks to the west and New Hampshire to the east, the Green Mountains of Vermont got very little in the way of climbing. The rock didn't help -- much of it soft schist which promoted the growth of greenery very strongly.

With the publication of Tough Schist: Rock Climbing in Northern Vermont by Travis Peckham, some of the climbing has now been documented. (Available from http://www.vermontrock.com/ .) Like any guide book, it is of course incomplete and inaccurate -- but it gives far more information in a publicly accessible format than has previously been available.

description

Canada's 2nd largest province by area, and largest by population, with most of the population along the north and west shore of Lake Ontario -- metro Toronto and outwards.

Ontario is of generally low relief -- the highest point is about 690m (2260ft) above sea level. This tends to make for a lack of large cliffs and long routes, so Ontario has a reasonable amount of decent cragging, but nothing that is destination climbing.

The northern parts of Ontario tend to be nearly uninhabited wilderness and crown (publicly owned) land. Southern and south-western Ontario, especially the areas around Toronto, are more densely populated and access issues are often complicated.

access issues

In the more populated areas of Ontario, especially southern and south-western Ontario (within a few hours drive of Toronto) access is often complicated, with many cliffs closed to climbing. The Ontario Alliance of Climbers (OAC) monitors this, and negotiates for access to cliffs, or to avoid closures. They maintain a crag status list at: https://www.ontarioallianceofclimbers.ca/crag-status/

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry also maintains an online crown land use policy atlas. This can often be used to determine the ownership status of the land on which a cliff is located in Ontario. It can be found at: http://www.giscoeapp.lrc.gov.on.ca/web/MNR/NHLUPS/CLUPA/Viewer/Viewer.html .

Climbing in Mexico is more than just El Potrero Chico, El Salto and El Chonta. Almost all of Mexico is covered by mountains and you will find climbing areas all over the country.

description

Mexico, with the Sierra Madre Occidental and the Sierra Madre Oriental as the main mountain ranges is a very mountaineous country and consequently offers lots of climbing and even more opportunities for future developments all over it. But Mexico not only offers awesome climbing, it also offers an amazing coastline and plenty of history and culture. Climbing in Mexico can thus be much more than just a lot of great climbs - from bouldering, sport climbing to long multi-pitch routes and trad climbs. Browse through the index and get inspired.
